A leader in the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party Elias Mudzuri who is strongly aligned to the camp led by the party’s reinstated leader Thokozani Khupe has dismissed allegations of infiltration by the ruling ZANU PF.
His remarks come after Job Sikhala, MDC legislator for Zengeza West and one of the bigwigs in the other faction led by Nelson Chamisa has vowed to ‘deal’ with President Emmerson Mnangagwa for meddling with MDC internal affairs.
Posting on Twitter on Saturday, Mudzuri said:
Assertions that ZANU PF is involved in the affairs of MDC are mere hallucinations triggered by denialism and refusal to accept responsibility for what we have done wrong. Extraordinary Congress is the only remedy.
His remarks resonate with those of ZANU PF Political Commissar, Victor Matemadanda who dismissed Sikhala’s assertions as child’s play.
Responding to Sikhala’s assertion on Friday, Matemadanda said that President Mnangagwa and the ruling ZANU PF party were preoccupied with national issues affecting the general populace hence no time for “sideshows”.
He added that although ZANU PF enjoys having the MDC as its opposition, the ruling party does not wish the MDC dead therefore leaders in the opposition must sober up and address their issues without pointing fingers “at innocent people.”
